Parents don’t have a lot of time for themselves these days. We know that. We live it. It’s our daily reality. But at the same time, all of this self-neglect isn’t good. It doesn’t matter if you have one child or several; everyone needs to take a little time out for themselves, right? In addition, everyone needs to take care of both their needs and the needs of their partner, too.
I’m sure you probably know what I’m getting to here. It’s that little three-letter word that everyone is obsessed with, but unfortunately no one really wants to talk about it. And it’s not because we don’t want to talk about it. Instead, it’s because we simply don’t have the time to talk about it. That’s just how BAD things have gotten.
Now, I am not going to go into detail about my own marriage, but I will say this. During this past weekend, we had back-to-back church events, extra curricular activities, birthday parties and soccer games to attend. It was non-stop. And even though I slept a good eight hours last night, I feel as though my body was hit by a freight truck.
